How people insights will help empower a more inclusive and engaging work experience
Empowering inclusive and engaging work experience with people insights
If you tuned into Cisco Live this week, you’ve heard loud and clear that the future of work is hybrid – and the future of collaboration must be more inclusive and engaging to make this new working model successful.
Whether you’re working at home, in the office, or both, teams and projects can pull you in multiple directions. How do you keep from burning out while maintaining an inclusive workplace?
Advancements to the people insights feature
We’re excited to announce that people insights is expanding beyond profiles with a new set of features that provide customized insights designed to empower people and teams to thrive in this new era of inclusive collaboration – right from your Webex app. People insights will provide detailed, private insights to you and your team to help you manage work-life balance, carve out focus time, and develop stronger and more effective working relationships and collaboration skills.
Watch the latest episode of Designing the future of work where Jeetu Patel (SVP & GM Security & Applications, Cisco) and Gianpaolo Barozzi (Sr. Director of People & Communities, Cisco Webex) shares with us the genesis and demo of People insights:
People insights help prioritize well-being at work
From your collaboration preferences, to meetings you join, and the network you build – every decision you make on how you spend your time and connect with others affects your output. People insights helps you reflect on how you spend your time.
- How often are you accepting meetings you never attend?
- Are you often sharing your video?
- How many meetings are you attending during your downtime?
- Who do you spend the most time with?
Manage your time with Webex
Webex will provide these valuable insights to help teams take control of their time. When teams spend their time effectively and achieve work-life balance, they can focus on the work that matters most, continue to build important connections, and nurture those relationships.
And this information is presented to you and only you. Your personal view of people insights will be as unique as you are. No one else has this information, and no two views of insights will be the same. Each individual can set personal preferences and goals and take action directly from the Webex app.
Intelligence vs Scoring
At Webex, we believe in empowering individuals and teams with intelligence – not a score. People insights is a visual representation of how you collaborate and spend your time. Work isn’t restricted to scheduled meetings within your org chart. Work is asynchronous. Our collaboration network and work output are fueled by ad-hoc phone calls, multiple messages, and introductions to new teams and people. By seeing how you spend your time, you can decide what is right for you.
Do you want to be more respectful of other people’s time? Set goals for joining and ending meetings on time, adding agendas to the meetings you host, or respecting others’ downtime.
Do you want to be more engaged during meetings? Set a goal for how often you speak up or turn on your video.
Webex is taking a people-first approach to empower inclusive collaboration and build engaging work experiences. People insights from Webex will help:
- enable seamless cross-collaboration
- ensure individual wellbeing and encourage healthy behaviors
- enhance work-life balance
- build quality connections
- empower diversity, equity, and inclusion
- maximize time on projects that matter most
Cisco is rooted in our people-first culture and approach, and our product vision is the same. Empowered individuals make stronger teams, and stronger teams build better organizations that innovate and power the economy.
We’re looking forward to working with some of our top customers to help shape the future of People insights for you!
